The playoff picture is heating up in the NBA, and while several teams jockey for positioning over the next two weeks, two of the best in the West will square off on Friday when the Warriors host the Rockets at Oracle Arena. It will be the most expensive NBA game this week. The Spurs, Bulls, Knicks and Clippers also host top games through Sunday.
Take a look at this week’s most expensive NBA games below, according to TicketIQ:
3/31/17 Houston Rockets @ Golden State Warriors | Average Resale Price: $439 | Get-in Price: $115
The race for first place will likely come down to the wire between the Warriors and Spurs, but fans in Oakland may be treated to a potential playoff matchup when the Warriors host the Rockets on Friday. Ticket prices are reflective of that. Warriors tickets against the Rockets currently average $439 and the cheapest tickets are listed from $115 each.
3/29/17 Golden State Warriors @ San Antonio Spurs | Average Resale Price: $290 | Get-in Price: $9
Prior to their showdown with the Rockets, the Warriors will finish their road stint with a stop in San Antonio on Wednesday. That will serve as the second priciest game this week, with Spurs tickets at AT&T Center averaging $290. Fans won’t have to dig deep to attend, however, as tickets start from just $9.
3/30/17 Cleveland Cavaliers @ Chicago Bulls | Average Resale Price: $276 | Get-in Price: $60
It’s been a rough few weeks for the Cavaliers, as they were dismantled by the Spurs on Monday and dropped to the second seed in the East. They’ll hope to return to form against the Bulls on Thursday, where Bulls tickets against the Cavaliers currently average $276 and the cheapest are priced from $60 each. The Bulls are looking to sneak into the eight seed in the East and sit just a half-game out as of Tuesday night.
3/29/17 Miami Heat @ New York Knicks | Average Resale Price: $231 | Get-in Price: $55
The Heat are looking to break a two-game skid when they travel to Madison Square Garden to take on the Knicks Wednesday night. They won’t have much room to work with if they hope to lock down a playoff spot, either, as the Bulls sit just a half-game out. Tickets to the Wednesday’s game currently average $231 and the cheapest tickets start from $55 each.
4/1/17 Los Angeles Lakers @ Los Angeles Clippers | Average Resale Price: $214 | Get-in Price: $42
A battle for Los Angeles will commence on Saturday when the Clippers host the Lakers at Staples Center. The game rounds off this week’s list of top-priced matchups, with Clippers vs. Lakers tickets averaging $214 and starting from $42 each. The Clippers are looking forward to a playoff run as the fifth seed in the West. The Lakers, meanwhile, sit in the basement of the conference at 21-52 entering Tuesday’s game against the Wizards.
